Baby it's Cold Outside - 2001

With her annual symphonic tours having become a Canadian holiday tradition and a musical outlook that’s becoming ever more diverse, a genuine Christmas album from Holly Cole is good news. This is it - boasting an exciting variety of seasonal tunes ranging from tongue-in-cheek renditions of infectious Christmas classics to special orchestral arrangements of personal holiday favorites. Staying true to her original approach, these new versions of much-loved songs also feature some essential "Hollyisms" - humor and sexual innuendo.

Co-produced by Cole and Greg Cohen, it’s a captivating cycle of songs that delivers additional proof of Holly Cole’s unique mastery of song interpretation, this time featuring a theme where she is truly at home.
